Lengthening

branch diptych

We learned in church this past Sunday that Lent comes from the same root as the word lengthen and that by Easter, our days will have 1 hour and 59 minutes more sunlight. When I was talking to my friend (and hair stylist) Shari the other day about this idea for a post, she told me I should post these same branches on Easter. I took these photos, but look how the sun and blue sky make them beautiful.

By the way, Shari took about 10 years off of me by cutting off (de-lengthening) several inches of old droopy hair :).

that's a great idea to post the same branch on Easter. I love seeing how things change with the seasons and find it interesting to compare the exact tree or plant.
I would love to see how your hair turned out.

I love that. AND I was thinking this morning that I wanted to find pictures just like this. I mean, I couldn't necessarily take them, but you captured the view I imagined. Fun. Thank you!

The blues are great... I'm so happy that we are switching our clocks back.
